Only in My Dreams

Only in My Dreams

We walk together hand in hand
Through fragrant woods
Where bluebells stand,
Where dappled light shines through the trees
and dances all around.

Reflecting on our yesterdays
Dreaming of tomorrow,
We talk and laugh, whilst
nature’s blanket keeps us close
free from harm and sorrow.

As morning birds start to sing
I turn to see your face, but find
an empty pillow lying in your place.
Now all’s no longer as it seemed
For I can only hold your hand
When you’re the dream I dreamed.

I am 50 something and 'YOU' is the first poem I have ever written. In 2013 I was devastated when I was diagnosed with breast cancer. Shortly after my five year review I found myself reflecting on life and these words flowed from the heart. I now present poetry and a series of non-clinical photographs called 'Focus on Emotions' to help people understand the emotional impact of a cancer diagnosis. I am also an award winning complementary therapist, keen photographer and write as a guest blogger.
